First, draw the design. Remember to not draw too much detail! Otherwise, it will be very difficult to cut out the design.

Begin to cut, following, as closely as possible, the chalk track design.

When you have finished cutting out the design, turn the tire inside out.

Next, smooth and perfect the design that you had roughly cut out before.

Your garden planter is ready! Now, you can let loose your imagination --- using outdoor paint to give it an even more floral look!
